Angel Tree


It's that time again!  I just love doing my Angel Tree.  We are adopting a Headstart classroom of 3 and 4 year old.  There are 20 children this year that we are going to try and provide them some Christmas joy!
I made the ornaments with my imagine.  The cartridges are Christmas Cheer and Imagine More.  I printed and cut the ornament fronts first and then I cut the "shadow" and glued them together.  Added some Stickles.  Gotta have bling and I use my 3d pen to write the name so that it pops. 

If you would like to donate toward the kids.  You can send a "gift" to my Paypal account at iluvsnowmen@verizon.net

Saturday Showcase ~ Harvest Blessings

Welcome to Showcase Saturday. 
I'm super excited about today's card.  I designed it from an inspiration I received from my friend Kathy Files.  She makes the most amazing photo albums.  While I was watching her I thought of the idea to make a card with the extra flap.  I'm sure someone else had already made one.. But I have never seen it so I figured out how to make this one and I'm sharing it with you.  As a joke with my friends.  I called it the
Flippin' Flap card.
   I used the Digital Delights Simply Fall Paper Set, Fall Sentiment Set, Fall Kids Set, I also used the Fall Accessories Set

Thanks for joining me today!  Huggles
